Maria Rock

As a senior leader of education with many years of experience including that of headship, I have a proven track record of improving schools and securing strong academic outcomes. My principled and visible leadership carries a strong commitment to providing high quality professional development for all staff and stakeholders in order to secure sustained and continual improvement at classroom level. A key area that I continue to invest in greatly, is facilitating high quality professional development  for senior and middle leaders to enable them to develop as effective leaders who can secure school improvement at all levels. I am also involved with the Early Careers offer including ITT/ECT/RQT provision in order to enhance the quality of coaching programmes and targeted support that entrants into the teaching profession engage with. The effectiveness of the programme carries a tremendous responsibility in driving forward the future quality of educational provision for all young people by placing the quality of teaching and learning at its core. My role enables me to raise standards across the trust through the empowerment and development of leaders within schools in order to ensure all children achieve their full potential.
